Gates open at 2:00 for families to line up, but distribution won’t start until 3:00. Here’s more info on when and where to go, from our media partner, WATE 6 On Your Side:
Cars will enter Chilhowee Park via 3500 Knoxville Zoo Drive and follow a one-way traffic flow to exit on Magnolia Avenue. A walk-up option will be available at the KAT bus stop located at the corner of Beaman Street and Magnolia Avenue, directly across from Perk City.
